There is a reason why Yeti is so expensive and that is because its the best out there right now. Awesome cup to use everyday but, I really like it when camping in the desert. Though its hot the cup keeps everything cold/hot for longer than any other cup I have used.

It's a great durable saddle bag. I havent really had to chance to beat it up yet. I did have it hit my back tire constantly when my rear shock fully compressed and you could see some scuffing but, it didnt rip or anything. Easily can fit a phone, keys, extra tube.

The velcro is strong and I appreciate the 3 straps so I dont have to worry about it falling off while I am riding.

Saw a bunch of my friends grab fanny packs, and wanted to give one a shot. If I was going to spend this much on one, I needed it to have dual functionality, running and biking. The famous Dakine pack used by bikers which has a small hydration bladder inside of it was a little too big for me to run with so I jumped on this.

The belt sits really flat, tight, and comfortably on your waist. I do prefer to wear it over my shirt but, if I was travelling its comfortable enough to wear under if you wanted some more security. The adjusting of it is a bit awkward, you have to make sure the velcro doesnt engage when sliding it. Can take a minute so take care of that before you head out.

With the soft flask completely filled I can still easily fit 2 Pro Bar Chew Packets in there. On the smaller pocket which is also zippered I can fit my phone, keys, and usually a small multi tool. I have put a 26" 2.4 MTB tube in the big pouch where the water bottle goes. Doesnt easily fit in there and is bulky but, its possibly. The stretchy material allows it to fit more than you might think in there.

Huge fan, now I bring water on every ride and run. Easily can listen to my music now with a set of wireless headphones and stash other important gear in there.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Finally got a small tear in the jacket. Was "chimneying" up a rock climb and using my back as a form of friction. Easily fixed it with some Tenacious Tape and were back to no holes and back to totally water/wind resistance. The shape of it when packed into its own pocket really does make a difference when hanging it on a harness. It doesnt get in the way of everything else on the harness like protection and slings. That makes it quicker, and easier to grab that gear while climbing, noticed it a bit at first but, really was thankful for it in the Teton's this past weekend.
